Office of the Vice-Provost, Innovations in Undergraduate Education

The Office of the Vice-Provost, Innovations in Undergraduate Education (OVPIUE) supports ongoing and new efforts to enhance the quality and expand the reach of high-impact teaching and learning practices at the University of Toronto.

“The Office was originally established to support President Gertler’s goal of Re-imagining Undergraduate Education, which is quite a broad canvas given the tremendous variety of disciplines and pedagogical approaches present across the three campuses.”

Professor Susan McCahan, Vice Provost, Innovations in Undergraduate Education

Our Priorities

To support innovations in undergraduate education across the University of Toronto, the OVPIUE supports a robust profile related to five key priorities:

  • Teaching Awards & Grants: Recognizing and funding staff and faculty who demonstrate commitment to innovation and excellence in teaching practices.
  • Analytics: Leveraging data to enhance program planning, decision-making and student success.
  • Digital Transformation: Building and supporting systems that enable faculty, staff and students to achieve their academic goals.
  • Curriculum Development: Working with institutional and divisional stakeholders to develop and assess course and program level outcomes.
  • Teaching Initiatives: Stewarding the development of institutional frameworks and resources for innovative teaching practices, such as experiential learning, undergraduate research and generative artificial intelligence in teaching and learning.

In each of these priority areas, the OVPIUE supports a range of programs, projects and committees that advance these areas in unique, but interrelated ways. Click each priority below to explore further.
